5. St. Paul’s Parks and Rec staff, Greg Reese, Alice Metzger, and Don Gange, made a 

presentation on proposed re-landscaping for Midway Parkway.   Parks discussed plans 

for a phased implementation of plantings.  This year the pond area at Pascal and Midway 

will be completed.  The plantings will have a “strong, linear feel” and staff will use native 

plantings wherever possible.   The plans seemed to be found positive by area residents.

(CIB) was preceded by a question and answer period for the 4 District 10 area proposals.

faxed to Dede Demko, PED staff and CIB contact.
